Pathology
Dr Munir: Diseases of Muscles, diseases of blood vessels, parasites affecting muscles, method of confirming infection of trichinella spiralis, and method of determining from which muscle the biopsy should be acquired (obviously a CT-Scan, Ultrasound or X-Ray).

External examiner: A model of atheromatous aorta, sentinel lymph nodes, commonest cause of cirrhosis in the world and in pakistan, causes of Right ventricular failure, whether systemic hypertension is related to right ventricular failure or not, how to differentiate between ductal carcinoma in situ and invasive ductal carcinoma on light microscope, commonest breast carcinoma, genetics of breast carcinoma, effects of silicosis on lungs.

Other questions asked from others were Caplan Syndrome and effect of cold on lungs.

Dr. Samina Naeem: A scenario in which PT normal PTT prolonged and bleeding time also prolonged, what is the mode of inheritance of vWD, which factor deficiencies are inherited, the factor the deficiency of which causes thrombosis rather than bleeding tendencies, the function of factor 13 (XIII), laboratory investigations in haemolytic aneamia, reticulocyte count.

External examiner taking viva of long slides: I got Papillary carcinoma of thyroid, microcytic hypochromic anaemia and Chondrosarcoma. Questions were asked related to papillary carcinoma. How to differentiate between follicular carcinoma and follicular adenoma by light microscopy, what is the appearance of psamomma bodies and where else are they appreciated by LM.

Scenario case with internal examiner: Related to a finding of HYPONATRAEMIA in a hospitalized patient who was neither over nor de hydrated. Questions were related mainly to ADH functions and associated diseases.
Dr. Munir, Dr. Samina, External     and Internal Examiners
Remember that hyponatraemia in a hospitalized patient after a major surgery may either be due to     stress-induced ADH release OR overhydration through exuberant IV line.

The factor deficiency related to THROMBOSIS is factor 12 (XII). This is also a very important usmle relevant clinical point. The reason for that is that activated factor 12 also activates the thrombolytic system through liberating the kinins. Its deficiency may not account for bleeding because of compensation by the external cascade of coagulation (Factor 7).

Effect of cold on lungs may be vaguely defined as pneumonia but should specifically be labelled as interstitial pneumonitis. Remember that overventilating in cold environment induces inflammatory and oedematous changes in the airways which also accounts of transient hoarseness of voice and croupy dry cough.
